Exaudi nos Domine JPEG

Hear us Lord, you who heard Jonah from the belly of the whale;
hear us calling, you who heard David laid low and dressed in sackcloth, calling and saying: 
Spare, spare and defend your creatures, Lord our God.    


Suggested use:  Benediction.

This chant was originally sung as a processional during the ceremony of imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday.
